Experiments in Democracy

At the beginning of March 2016 we held a number of events around 'experiments in democracy', talks to inspire new ways of thinking about democratic participation.

We have a great set of videos from the main speaker event and a set of notes from the open discussion. If you were inspired by these talks and want to stand as a local candidate in upcoming elections, Marie-Louise Holland has offered to provide advice

These events were organised with 38 Degrees Cambridge, Pivotal - Cambridge Festival of Change, and Transition Cambridge.

Join the Energy Group!

One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.

The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.

However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.

We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!

Wednesday 1st June: Wildlife Wanderings Evening on Coe Fen

Meet beside The Mill pub, 14 Mill Lane, Cambridge CB2 1RX 18:00-20:00 add to google calendar
We are so lucky to have the river and water-meadows right in the centre of Cambridge. Some of us who work in the city know just what a wealth of wildlife is hidden away. This evening a guest has been invited from the conservation hub at the David Attenborough building who will inspire us about what can be spotted in a quiet moment at lunchtime or on the commute back home. Think water voles, water rails and kingfishers...

Thursday 9th June: EU Referendum Conversation Cafe

Unitarian Church Emmanuel Road Cambridge 19:15-22:00 add to google calendar
Are you In or Out, Undecided or Confused? The media is full of comments and opinion, facts and fear mongering - it can be difficult to make a clear headed decision with all the noise. Our Conversation Cafe, organised in association with our friends at Pivotal Cambridge, is an opportunity to create some space in which to hear and be heard. The evening will be a mixture of facilitated group discussion around Transition and Pivotal values, such as the environment, social justice and democracy, food and water security, energy security and immigration. The aim is simply to help people find some personal clarity about their voting position. No party political speeches, grandstanding or attempts to sway opinion, just honest conversation with refreshments. This event is free, with a suggested on the door donation of £3 -£5, but you do need to register for your place, here.
